Piku Movie Review
The Bollywood Movie Piku is the story of a cranky Bengali Style, Piku (Deepak Padukone) is an only child, who lives with her elderly, widowed father Bhaskor (Bachchan) in a bungalow in Chittaranjan Park. Her father Bhaskor obsesses about his health – including creating commotion around his stomach’s motion. Piku’s torn between tenderness for her elderly dad and frustration at being stuck in a rut. Suddenly, Bhaskor wants to visit Calcutta – but insists on traveling from Delhi via road. What happens when intriguing Rana (Irrfan) drives them?
What makes the movie unique is the cast. The way Irfan Khan has acted and seen a silent romance between Deepika and Irfan is something that you would hardly see.
Amitabh Bachchan justifies Bhaskor character plays a vital role in the movie. In fact, we’ll say that the movie would have been incomplete without him.
